Improve Your Smile and Your Oral Health 

Most people are interested in orthodontic treatment because they want to improve the appearance of their smile. But having your teeth straightened accomplishes more than the noticeable aesthetic change of straighter teeth.

Appearance is important to everyone, but even more important is the need to eliminate or minimize any potential health problems related to the teeth or jaw. Misaligned teeth or jaw problems often lead to ineffective oral hygiene that can itself lead to tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even tooth loss. 

Without proper treatment, orthodontic problems can also create difficulties with chewing and digestion, impair speech, and create abnormal wearing of tooth surfaces. Over time, the excessive strain on your jaws and gums caused by misaligned teeth can eventually lead to such problems as headaches or face and neck pain.

Dr. Yazji can perfect your bite and give you the straight, healthy smile you deserve. We offer two types of orthodontic treatment:

Fixed Silver Braces

You’re probably most familiar with silver braces, which have been widely used for many years. Traditional silver braces are made of high-grade stainless steel, using metal wire, brackets, and elastic bands to straighten your teeth. The brackets are secured to the surfaces of the teeth.

At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we use state-of-the-art orthodontics to create silver braces that are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than ever.

Ceramic Braces

These braces use strong ceramic materials that are resistant to wear and tear. Ceramic braces are usually clear or enamel-colored, making them a perfect choice if you want natural-looking braces

Duration of Treatment

Treatment with either silver or ceramic braces can take anywhere from a year to 36 months, but 24 months is typical. There are many factors that affect treatment time, including the complexity of the case, patient compliance, and oral hygiene habits.

Before we proceed, Dr. Yazji will discuss all aspects of your proposed treatment with you. We’ll talk about what’s involved and what you can expect from the orthodontic process. Our goal is to answer your questions and explain everything in great detail so that you have all the information you need to feel confident with your decision.

If you’re considering orthodontic treatment for yourself or your child, please give us a call.
